I started with tuna, chicken, and soups because we eat these. I bought on sale and have hundreds of cans of each, more than I can rotate.
I moved on to rice, beans, oats and wheat in 5 and 6 gallon pails which is cheaper and last a long time.
The last thing I did was move to freeze dried and dehydrated meat and veggies that last for many years.
I plan on eating this stuff in the next year or two depending on how the election goes...
